navigation bar memory??

Postby cciaffone » Tue 28 Feb, 2012 1:03 pm

On the Navigation Bar, to the right of the current URL, is a down
arrow that brings up a list of previous URL hits. Mine has ceased to
remember visited URLs. What controls how this works? How can
I get seamonkey 2.0.11 to start remembering where I've been???

I don't know about Seamonkey.
But on Firefox, see: Tools > Options > [tab] Privacy. Review Custom Settings.

Seamonkey 2.0.11 was released in December 2010. There have been many updates, since then. The current one is 2.7.2, but the settings are pretty much the same, I think. You should look at Preferences|Privacy and Security| check list of items to be cleared on closing Seamonkey. I have a check mark, next to Location Bar. Unchecked it.
Also, click on Help|Check for Updates. You should be directed to to the nearest update.

Go to: Edit | Preferences | Browser | History | Location Bar History | Clear Location Bar

The 'Location Bar' only remembers locations that are typed in, it doesn't remember any locations accessed by links in a web page or by bookmarks, etc.

Yes thanks, I understand all of that.

But if (when??) I inadvertently mistype a URL, is there any way
to remove just that URL from the memory??

I don't think so, it's either all or nothing!

Same question, years ago. Answered by Ramona. (Whatever has happened to her anyway? Her last post appears to have been in July 2009. But she still is listed as a moderator.)

Pause mouse on unwanted item, use keyboard Delete key.

Ramona had serious heart surgery about a year ago and has decided to cut back on her time online to devote to her health. I hope I have not misrepresented her position.
